Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The comprehensive, unified, up-to-date guide to transport and separation processes

Today, chemical engineering professionals need a thorough understanding of momentum, heat, and mass transfer processes, as well as separation processes. Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles, Fourth Edition offers a unified and up-to-date treatment of all these topics. Thoroughly updated to reflect the field's latest methods and applications, it covers both fundamental principles and practical applications.

Part 1 covers the essential principles underlying transport processes: momentum transfer; steady-state and unsteady-state heat transfer; and mass transfer, including both unsteady-state and convective mass transfer. Part 2 covers key separation processes, including evaporation, drying, humidification, absorption, distillation, adsorption, ion exchange, extraction, leaching, crystallization, dialysis, gas membrane separation, reverse osmosis, filtration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, settling, centrifugal separation, and more. This edition's extensive updates and enhancements include:

  • A more thorough coverage of momentum, heat, and mass transport processes
  • Detailed new coverage of separation process applications
  • Greatly expanded coverage of momentum transfer, including fluidized beds and non-Newtonian fluids
  • More detailed discussions of mass transfer, absorption, distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, and crystallization
  • Extensive new coverage of membrane separation processes and gas-membrane theory

Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles, Fourth Edition also features more than 240 example problems and over 550 homework problems reflecting the field's current methods and applications.

Best Chemical Engineering book I ever had.
Jordan Meyer
The book does a remarkable job of taking a very complicated subject and making it seem as easy as can it could possibly be.
LMS
Excellent structured pairing of chapter labeling with homework and example problems.

The only review that I can give for the text would be for the separations sections, of which our class concentrated mainly on the distillation regime. Excellent structured pairing of chapter labeling with homework and example problems. Open-ended problems required a sufficient level of engineering skills.

Pretty good chemical engineering textbook. Goes through the material and provides nice charts and images to go along with the material. Required by my school so not much really to say about it.

I like this book. It is very direct to the resolution of routine problems found in industry. It is a good book for undergraduate students and industrial engineer.

Format: Hardcover
This book is by far the best and most thorough chemical engineering book we used at my university. Every chapter redefines variables it uses instead of you having to reference 8 chapters back to remember what a particular variable is. The book does a remarkable job of taking a very complicated subject and making it seem as easy as can it could possibly be. This book saved me in school and, as I said, is without a doubt the best text book we used during undergrad.

Had to buy this book for one of my ChemE courses and it is one of the worst textbooks I've ever had to buy. Examples are sparse and overly simplified, sections are poorly organized, text is under detailed, and generally not a good reference source. Would not use again.

I thought it could have been explained better certainly had material to learn on your own requires time and dedication as well as a great teacher.
